Now I'm even less impressed.

And look at how uncomfortable this riding position looks... makes the clamshell position of the V-Rod look like a La-Z-Boy

I thought the same thing when I saw that picture, but I think it's partially because that dude is tall and partially because he's just not minding his posture. But you're right, the curve on his lower back is a chiropractor's wet dream $$$.

This guy seems to fit the bike a lot better:



Personally, I swing those handlebars back which would have the effect of bring them closer and lowering them out of the semi-ape grip.

A far more glowing article. And now I'm even more impressed. The bike actually has cartridge forks and they have a 1" taller shock for more serious play time.

That oval side cover just kills the whole bike. Who in Hades let that get into production?

I think that once they start showing pictures with graphics or numbers on the side panels more people will understand why they were designed into the build.

Just sat on it at the london bike show I am 5"6 so hardly tall and I felt cramped comfy it is not unlike my Hammer which with the foot pegs moved back1.5 inches via the victory plates feels just right and looks much better to put it mildly

You could always paint a football on it and be a hit at the sports bars.
